The Leadership Skill Set: What Every Leader Needs to be Able to Do
In this video, I look at the leadership skills a leader needs to acquire in a workplace setting. It’s a long list, so buckle up.

Introduction to Leadership

Section 1: Introduction to Leadership
Other videos in our Introduction to Leadership:

I divide the broad skillset a leader needs into six categories:
1: Setting the Culture
2: Getting Things Done
3: Building Capacity and Capability
4: Inspiring their Teams
6: Personal Leadership
1. What did I miss? Are there any skills you are likely to need in your setting that I did not mention? (2 MC CPD Points)
2. How does your skillset match up? Go through each of the six groups of skills and assess where your strengths and development needs lie? (6 MC CPD Points)
3. Download our free CPD tools (https://gum.co/MC-CPD) and start to plan for developing your own Leadership Skillset (3 MC CPD Points)
There are a vast number of Leadership books – perhaps more than on any other management-related topic. And there is also a huge range represented in different lists of the best. This no-doubt reflects the different contexts for leadership.
So, any recommended reading list of leadership books must be particularly subjective. I have chosen those that made me think, and which are of particular value to managerial leaders: not sportspeople, military leaders, or CEOs. In no particular order:
📖 Leaders Eat Last
📖 Start with Why
📖 Humble Leadership
📖 The Leadership Challenge
📖 The New Leaders
📖 Shackleton’s Way
📖 Why should Anyone be Led by You
📖 The Habit of Excellence
